should be driven by san franciscans that reflect our commute -- communities. this is better for our economy and it's better for our residents. so how can we do it? first we at city hall must ensure that we are collaborating with the tech force industry and make sure we are ready for the future. we need training programs particularly for disadvantaged communities and we need private partnerships and oed's. i'm specifically looking to answering 4 questions. is the program reaching under served communities. is it's training geared towards what tech companies actually need. is techsf partnering with companies to get jobs and what can we do to hide. the digital divide is only one part of our solution. we need to focus on transitional age youth and high school students and we need to cross program collaboration to ensure one program advance to another level. i also think we should consider what the next steps are after tech sf which is a temporary grant program. i am determined that these opportunities be shared. i look forward to your presentation and thank you all very much for being
particularly profound for san franciscans who because of challenges in educational or literacy opportunities live in an english proficiency, disabilities or their status as an ex offender, folks have not been able to get jobs in the economy that we have in san francisco. ~ in our city, we have as i think you all know, a very significant network of federal, state, and locally funded work force development programs. and, in fact, the last time the budget analyst did an audit, these programs were estimated to cost close to $30 million. in 2006-2007, the then board of supervisors working with the mayor authorized the creation under the office of -- the creation of the office of work force development which was supposed to serve as the local oversight and policy making body for this vast network. in recent months, i think a number of us have heard from community and work force stakeholders that the current work force system continues to be too fragmented. at this time there are over 15 departments that have work force development program system sorts. authority for these programs remain entirely
